Professional Mastering Studios


“I put my heart and soul into everything I do; mastering your record will be no different.” Beard Bates

During mastering, a professional engineer optimizes your CD by using EQ, compression, and other dynamics processing, so your album can compete with any major label release. In other studios, this service can cost you thousands of dollars. Bates Mastering delivers professional quality at prices indie artists can afford.
